Brown recluse spider??

Asked January 26, 2017, 1:02 PM EST

Dear Expert, Can you please identify whether the spider I found in my house is a brown recluse? See attached photos. If it is a brown recluse, can you please advise on who I call for extermination? Regards, Susan

We can't tell the size from your photo, but it is not a brown recluse. They would have an unmarked abdomen.
They are also not found in our area.
